It's WIP Wednesday!

Oops, I almost missed the last WIP Wednesday of the year. Got in a bit more stitching on the towel, so just the backstitching to go.

Hopefully I'll get some stitching in tonight as it's an at-home New Year's Eve.

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you all health and happiness in 2015.

It's WIP Wednesday!

And the bath towel got a few more hours.

Looking for a finish over Christmas break.

A very Merry Christmas to one and all!

IHSW Results

Well, I didn't get as much stitching time as I had hoped (do we ever?), but I made a little progress on my hooded towel.

I was here on Friday night

and got to here by Sunday night.

The first picture is by far the more accurate colour for the towel.

Got to get a move on - the baby shower is going to be sometime between Boxing Day and New Year's Eve.

It's a Wet, Windy, Chilly Day

So what do you do to pass the time?

Well, you can always have a bath - your fur won't shine all by itself after all.


you can sit and stare at your human and hope she gives you treats.

It's IHSW!

Well, it's the third weekend in December and the last IHSW for 2014 is on! What am I talking about?

It's WIP Wednesday!

How did we get here again so fast? This week I'm working on a hooded bath towel.

The pattern seemed appropriate for a baby born in a fishing community like Prince Rupert.

It's a fun stitch and it shouldn't take me too long to finish it.

And It's Done!

Finished the bib last night. Bring on the baby shower!

It's a Charlescraft pre-finished bib with 14 count Aida insert.

The pattern came with the bib.

Getting In On WIP Wednesday

I've been working on a bib - my craft partner was supposed to become a first time grandma this weekend, but he decided to show up last night - so I need to get cracking! Here's where I am:

There's one more elephant - green one - to go on the left with another heart and 2 more stars.

And some back stitching.

What Do You On A Cold and Snowy Evening?

Well, if you're one of my cats, you nap or do a little washing up. Near a heater of course.

What do you do?

Just finished the stocking I've been stitching for a friend for her newest grandchild.

Sorry for the wrinkles, but it's just out of the hoop. It's a cute design, but it has French knots in the middle of nowhere, so I have long lengths of floss across the back. Why do designers do that?

Now to work on a couple of things for a baby shower in a couple of weeks - if the baby is on time!
